Americans are indeed living in unprecedented times. Never has any sitting U.S. President been so viciously and relentlessly investigated or challenged by the Democratic Party, mainstream media, courts career politician and diplomats and, at times, even his own Republican party for almost the entire first term. At the same time, never has that same President achieved so many quantifiable changes that could forever change the political and strategic landscape of the country. It is awesome and at the same time breathtaking. The main motivation for writing this book was to address the extremely bias news reporting by some of the most established news organizations in the world but it eventually evolved into exploring the subject of political and strategic leadership.
Since 2007, while living in Massachusetts for four years, I witnessed the rapid decline of America first-hand. America was no longer winning strategically on the world stage. China on the other hand, rose rapidly through the ranks, making all the right strategic decisions. America was heavily in debt, while China enjoyed strong economic growth as the world’s manufacturing hub. The 9/11 attacks had weakened the American psyche and emboldened its enemies to engage in increasingly aggressive acts of violence in the country. The Obama administration doubled the national debt and, in its second term unleashed liberal propaganda that further divided the country along racial, gender and economic lines. The stage was set for a hard reset.
In 2015, prominent New York billionaire Donald J. Trump entered the race and ran a campaign that significantly transformed the political landscape. He not only defeated sixteen Republican heavyweights, the largest field of candidates at the time, but also the very first female Democratic nominee. Almost two years later, America’s economy and the stock market are at their strongest ever, unemployment is at historic lows, the transnational terrorist networks are largely defeated, and North Korea is no longer a serious global security threat.
